About me

I am a counsellor and supervisor with 22 years experience of working with depression, anxiety, sexuality, migration, living with and caring for a long term health condition and sexual/relationship issues. I have worked with people of all ages, genders, sexuality and backgrounds. I work with individuals and couples and have worked with clients on a short and long term basis. My private practice is based in West Kensington near to the North End Road and West Kensington, Baron's Court, West Brompton tube stations. I am also able to offer sessions online.

For couples, counselling offers a safe space to explore those difficult discussions where you keep getting stuck, helps you develop a better understanding of each other, and work towards improved communication.

I am currently an advanced trainee in Psychosexual Therapy.

I have a Diploma in Supervision and a Postgraduate Certificate in Couples Counselling.

I have extensive experience of working with Individuals and couples. I work for CIC Employment Assistance Programme as a case manager and undertake assessments in a counselling agency for the NHS.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
